Domesticated pigs can be found on farms across the globe, except for in Antarctica, and wild pigs are also scattered on most of the continents. In the wild, pigs tend to prefer forested areas that also have a decent amount of water nearby. Marshes and swamps are common habitats for pigs.

Pigs are extremely intelligent and resourceful creatures, and wild pigs have learned to adapt to multiple different kinds of habitats to survive. They are omnivores that can live in both warm and cold climates, and they also have very few predators with humans being the primary threat. Domesticated pigs are bred for meat around the world.
